When you see bears in the woods play Dead

If you’re making the trek over to Live Oak this November (a) I’m very jealous and (b) here’s a bit of good news for you:

The Bear Creek Music & Arts Festival held this November 10 – 13, 2011 at Suwannee Music Park in Live Oak, FL has just released the daily performance schedule as well as additional details about pre-parties, costume theme nights, ticket prices and more. The festival lineup includes Trey Anastasio Band (only Florida performance), Medeski, Martin, Scofield and Wood, Galactic, The Funky Meters, Big Gigantic, Soulive, Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe and many more. Check out the full lineup details and tickets on sale now by going here.

MORE MUSIC: PRE-PARTIES WEDNESDAY AND THURSDAY NIGHTS
To kick off the weekend of music, Bear Creek will have an official Pre-Party on Wednesday night featuring Honey Island Swamp Band, Juno What!?, Thomas Wynn & the Believers, Gravity A, Pepper Drive, Trial By Stone, funkUs in The Music Hall. Thursday night’s party – on four stages – will host Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe, Beats Antique, Pimps of Joytime, Papadosio, George Porter’s Runnin Pardners and many more.

4-Day Passes include Thursday night and 5-Day Passes include both Wednesday and Thursday nights (Note: I honestly don’t know of many camping festivals in the U.S. where 5-day passes are included, this is only for the true blue fans). All active and retired military that purchase a 3-Day Pass will be upgraded to a 4-Day Pass (Thursday to Sunday). Valid military ID at the gate is required.

EARLY-BIRD TICKET PRICE AVAILABLE UNTIL OCTOBER 13
With less than 6 weeks to Bear Creek, early bird tickets are still available for a limited time. Weekend festival passes will remain at $150 until 11:59PM on Wednesday, October 12. Thereafter, ticket price will increase to $165. Buy now and save a few bucks! ww.bearcreekmusicfestival.com.

COSTUME PARTIES ANNOUNCED
Friday night of Bear Creek will see the first of two costume parties with the theme WARM & FUZZY, so bring your warm & fuzzy costumes – long johns, smoking jackets, hats, fleeces, animal outfits and more – to get into the spirit. To honor the funk roots of Bear Creek, Saturday night’s theme FUNK SOLDIERS GONE WILD brings back the disco era with leisure suits, bell-bottoms, and all the disco funk you can gather.
